Reviews for Best Italian Chicken
"Made as directed and found it delicious with a nice little spice to it. Very easy to make, too."
"So delicious! I made this using garlic and onion instead of the powder types and served on rice pilaf and my family really enjoyed it- will be making again."
"I made this recipe last night. The only difference was I used thighs instead of breasts. We think they have more flavor and are moister. I braised the chicken in olive oil until almost done. I did not use chili powder nor terrigon. I would never have thought of such a thing, definitely not Italian. I used a whole chopped small onion, 8 ounces of sliced muhrooms and two cans of Italian tomatoes. I poured all ingredients over chicken, covered and simmered for about thirty minutes. No corn starch, just let it cook until liquid is reduced. I adjusted the seasonings and then I baked it in the oven for about thirty minutes and sprinkled Mozarella (sp) cheese on top and baked it a few minutes longer to melt and brown the cheese. I served it over angel hair spaghetti with Caesar salad and sweet Italian bread. I definitely will do this again. My husband loved it and so did I."
"Hubby and I really liked all of the flavors together. Delicous as is!!!!"
"Which reminds me .... sheesh. Old Ruciptie but very good. Up the Italinan seemesize me, or a cup out of a bottle."
"I thought this was great, however I used chicken broth in place of the water & bouillon cubes. I've never liked the strong taste of them. Otherwise perfect!!"
